2nd Toyota Technical Education Programme Launched

Ebrahim K. Kanoo, sole distributor of Toyota vehicles in the Kingdom of Bahrain, announced the opening of the 2nd Toyota Technical Education Programme (TTEP) at a ceremony held at Al-Jabriya Secondary Technical Boys School, where training materials and equipment were also donated to the school.

Held under the patronage of H.E. Minister of Education, Dr Majid bin Ali Al-Noaimi, the event is part of a global Toyota Motor Company (TMC) initiative aimed at recruiting young local talent from vocational schools and educational outlets worldwide and inducting them into the Toyota network. The donation included textbooks, car panels and bumpers, spray guns and a Lexus IS250 training vehicle, all of which will be used to provide hands-on skills training for students looking to pursue a career in the automotive industry. The activity falls in line with Ebrahim K. Kanoo’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, which focuses on education and youth development. The company has employed a large number of talented students over the years through similar initiatives.

Ebrahim K. Kanoo Director of Corporate Services, Mr. Talal Kanoo said: “It is part of Toyota’s mandate to encourage local talent and give back to communities. T-TEP aims to create long-term change by improving local skill sets and providing a platform for future generations to improve their abilities. We strive to build an educated, more effective workforce that will elevate the automotive industry locally and globally.”

The ceremony was attended by H.E. Dr. Al-Noaimi, Ministry of Education, Undersecretary for Curriculum, Dr. Fawzi Aljowder, Assistant Undersecretary for General Education, Latifa Al-Bonoutha, Director of Technical and Vocational Education, Dr. Mohammed Abdul-Razzaq Al-Siddiqi, Toyota Motor Corporation – Bahrain Representative Office (TMC–BRO) General Manager, Yoshiyuki Koike, Ebrahim K. Kanoo board members, School Headmaster, Mr. Sayed Redha Alawi, and other school staff members.

Al-Jabirya Technical School Body & Paint Section is the second registered T-TEP School in Bahrain, with Bahrain Training Institute (BTI) officially registered since 1998 as the first institute to implement Toyota’s global initiative.
